Domain Name not working on localhost

0 votes

I have a home server set up with a couple of things going on. Here is the weird thing that I can't figure out. I can access everything just fine from an INTERNET connection external to my LAN using my domain name, let's say "". So, if I type into my browser on my LAN "", it searches without actually finding it's destination giving up after a period of time saying the server cannot be found (usually an error 408).
But, if I type on my mobile phone browser using my data connection (not on the LAN), it connects without a hitch and everything functions fine. I have done this set up before at a different home, but since I moved, I have come across this problem and either don't remember having this happen before or don't remember what I did to resolve it. Also, I changed ISP and that seemed to be the beginning of the problem. I set up my port forwards and checked my firewalls on the router. I looked on google and couldn't find anything specific to my problem. Everything I have read in the user documentation for apache seems to be set up correctly. I guess my question is what do I not know that I should know to be looking for. :-/
Could some one direct me as to what I should look for?

Most likely your (new) ISP is not set up to route traffic out and then back in again.

Instead, on your client set up a hosts file entry with the private IP address of the server on your LAN and you should be fine.

I have a main domain (of course) and a sub domain. I'm really trying to steer my personal stuff away from the main one and have focused all of my php development to the sub-domain.

Lately I noticed that google catalogs my sub-domain site stuff under the main domain name and the links that come up lead to that domain name with the path that takes the user to the sub-domain's home folder and beyond.

Is there something that php (apache??) can do to control either google's robots or the user's view (url) so that it appears as a page of my sub-domain?

I have RSA and DSA Certificates for my domain issued from Symantec Corp. The Certificate information for both the RSA and DSA Certificate is same except the CSRs are generated and submitted with different algorithm.
Now, I want to install both (RSA and DSA) certificates on my Apache server, so that it uses the same port (e.g: 443) on which I will be configuring. I am not aware as to how to configure RSA and DSA Certificates on same port.
